The basketball player has 20 potential athletic scholarships, totaling more than $1 million, riding on his final exams, which he must score well on to maintain his GPA and choose from universities like Cornell and Xavier. It's a daunting task at the rigorous Poly — made even more difficult by a citywide policy that gives less weight to grades in Advanced Placement and honors courses than any other school district in the Baltimore region.

Howard Community College student Sarah Blake was in Egypt when that nation's turbulent demonstrations began, and she and her friends found themselves being pushed and shoved in Cairo's streets. "It was really scary. That's when the tear gas started coming out more and the water cannon trucks were going through. The police cars would come through, and crowds of people would just scramble," said Blake, who returned from the violence-torn nation last week after a one-month stay.

The 17 roses that adorned the desks of Brian Rainville's third-grade classroom at Maree G. Farring Elementary/Midde School symbolized why he was named Baltimore's Teacher of the Year on Thursday morning. The roses were originally a bouquet presented to Rainville as he learned he had received the honor during a surprise visit from schools CEO Andres Alonso and other administrators. As fast as they were in his arms, Rainville handed the flowers to one of his students who distributed them to the rest of the class, as Rainville offered his first words: "It's the students' accomplishments that allow any teacher to succeed," he said.

In April, a pickup truck crossed into DiNunzio's safety zone along Old Emmitsburg Road, striking and killing the 22-year-old Spanish major as she trained for the Pittsburgh Marathon. Police say she followed all the rules: running without headphones, facing traffic and staying as far from traffic as possible on a road with no paved shoulder.
